Ginetta Junior graduate Emily Linscott enjoyed a positive first test in a BRDC British F3 car at Donington Park yesterday (Thursday) as she continued preparations for a professional motorsport career.
Linscott, who has also competed in selected F4 races in Asia and in the Lucas Oil Formula Car Race Series, was at the wheel of Chris Dittmann Racing’s recently acquired third car, and completed dozens of laps on the Donington Park National circuit.
“It was awesome out there, the Chris Dittmann Racing team were absolutely amazing,” she commented. “It was my first time in the F3 car, so getting used to the car was hard to begin with and I’d say the most surprising thing was how much it actually pulls on your neck. That’s definitely something I’ve got to focus on in training but being out there and learning how to drive the car has been absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to hopefully get back out in it soon!
While currently lacking budget for a campaign in single seaters, Linscott is aiming to forge a career in open wheel motorsport and would jump at the chance to race in British F3 should an opportunity arise.
“We don’t have the budget [to race], but if I do want to race in it, it will be tough to find the sponsorship but I’m definitely not giving up on that option yet.
“My plans for the future is to race professionally in an open wheel car, a Formula car of some sort. This is definitely a step towards my future goals and it’s definitely a car I wouldn’t turn down, and I loved every second of it today.”
